'I've lost my keys, have I lost my mind?'
Have you ever asked yourself: "What did I come into this room for?" Most adults have simple lapses in memory. We misplace our keys, forget how to spell a common word, or can't remember a name. When should you start to be concerned that your forgetfulness could be something more?
--Daily tasks are a challenge
--Trouble planning or problem solving
--A change in mood
--Can't remember simple things
--Disoriented when away from home
An estimated 5.5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease, and many more suffer from dementia. With memory issues, if caught early, the transition to a senior living community can provide an independent living arrangement while remaining safe. You will be able to enjoy our physical activities and attend memory-stimulation classes that will help your brain stay active and healthy, all in a comfortable setting which may be safer than your home.
When memory struggles start to appear, don't wait too long to consider retirement living. In the early stages, your mind will be able to adapt to a new living community and build routine memories. An early transition to a welcoming community is far less traumatic than waiting until a tragedy or accident happens. Furthermore, many retirement communities have waiting lists.
Call to schedule an appointment today at Country Meadows Village for a guided tour. We will show you and your family exactly how senior living can help you remain independent while enriching your mind and body.
